Paraplu Violet® Rose of Sharon Care
Rose of Sharon tolerates some neglect, so plant care is easy. It thrives in full sun but takes partial shade. It is hardy in USDA zones 5 - 9. Plant it in well-drained soil, preferably with high fertility; it likes slightly acid conditions. Water the shrub moderately and be aware that Rose of Sharon does not like soggy conditions. You may use a granular rose or flowering-shrub fertilizer in early spring, once the ground has thawed. One of the many qualities of Paraplu Violet® Rose of Sharon Hibiscus x is its tolerance for a wide range of soil pH. In addition, it is salt tolerant.
This plant needs no special winter care. Little pruning is needed due to its graceful habit. It blooms on new wood, therefore, if you do want to give it a light pruning, early spring is best before buds develop. Note that this shrub will leaf out late in spring. Don’t worry, it isn’t dead, just be patient and your gorgeous Rose of Sharon will reward you with its beauty.
Paraplu Violet® Rose of Sharon Spacing
